Fifteen Sri Lankan parliamentarians will visit China next week to attend a program on disaster management, the Asian News International reported.

China handed over the equipment estimated at 293,000 U.S. dollars to the Sri Lankan Parliament to boost parliament to parliament ties between the two countries.

While appreciating and accepting the donation, Sri Lankan Parliament Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said to date over 100 parliamentarians had visited China for several programs with the support of China.

Jayasuriya said a further 15 parliamentary members would visit China next week to undergo a program on disaster management. "We hope to strengthen this relationship further," Jayasuriya said.

China's Ambassador to Sri Lanka. Yi Xianliang, said China welcomed more local parliamentarians to visit China and would look forward to further boosting ties with the island country.

Yi said he would also encourage more Chinese companies and investors to invest in Sri Lanka.

    It is initself a disaster sending these parliamentarians to China,because when they are back,they would have learnt nothing to pass on the knowledge to the people who really man the disaster situations in Sri Lanka. Not these people who should be making this trip but the seniors from the government disaster management agencies who really are hands down in this type of emergencies during disasters.
